While experimenting with the top ruffle section on my original Santa storage basketsan idea came into mind that I should try doing a bearded version of these baskets. This idea appeared after a particularly disastrous ruffle attempt where I had way to many ruffles within a stitch – some positives do sometimes appear out from a disaster it seems!
I love how the beard detail has come out on these baskets and can’t wait for their recipients to see them at Christmas.
Pattern for these along with the original baskets is available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shops:
I’ve been needing to organise my fabric for a while now – every time I open the cupboard it’s in I have to be quick to get what I want and get out again before it all falls out! I decided it was time to get it organised and soon realised I needed some more storage baskets to keep the smaller bits of fabric together in.
Luckily I put together a pattern a few years ago for The Craft Cotton Company to make some fabric storage baskets so I used that to make some more. I found some Lewis and Irene fabric in my stash to use – County Life for the outside and The Glen for the lining.
Now I’ve got it all tidy I can now get in my cupboard without having to avoid any falling bits of fabric – hopefully I can keep it tidy for a bit longer this time!
Pattern is available over on The Craft Cotton Company blog.
Bring a summer garden into your home with these crochet storage baskets
With all the wet and cold weather that’s been happening I decided to try and brighten things up a bit by making some summer garden themed storage baskets with flowers and bee details. They have definitely brought a bit of summer into the house, still horrible weather outside unfortunately – roll on summer!
Pattern now available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shops:
I wanted to make a few more storage baskets and decided to make some with a dinosaur theme – so here are some stegosaurus storage baskets, might see if I can do a few more different dinosaurs patterns over the next few weeks.

It’s been a while but the crochet storage baskets are back – jumping in are some frogs!
I have been meaning to make some more crochet storage baskets but too many other projects have been sneaking in the way first! Now hat most of those are finished I have managed to squeeze in a new set or storage baskets, this time it’s a set of frogs!
The pattern for this is available over on my Etsyand Ravelryshops.
These storage baskets are made with my current favourite stitch – a bobble stitch, I love the textured effect you get when using a bobble effect among other flat stitches. The colours in these are my favourites to use in winter time, I always seem to drift towards using them when the weather starts to cool and Christmas is drawing near.
Pattern for this is now available on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.
